Convert CGM to IMAGE via Java

Export CGM file to IMAGE within any within any Java J2SE, J2EE, J2ME applications without using Adobe® Acrobat Reader


You can convert cgm file to IMAGE image in Java in two simple steps. Firstly, by using Aspose.PDF for Java , you can export CGM to JPEG. After that, by using Aspose.Imaging for Java Image Processing API, you can render JPEG to IMAGE. Both APIs come under the Aspose.Total for Java package.

Export CGM to IMAGE via Java

  1. Open CGM file using Document class
  2. Initialize class object and render CGM to JPEG by using Process method
  3. Load JPEG file by using Image class
  4. Save the document to JPEG2000 format using save method

Get Started with Java File Automation APIs

You can easily use Aspose.Total for Java directly from a Maven based project and include libraries in your pom.xml.

Alternatively, you can get a ZIP file from downloads .

Convert CGM to IMAGE in a Single File via Java

The API also allows you to export CGM file to IMAGE to a single file. In order to convert all pages, you can first render your CGM document to one TIFF file and after that, you can export the TIFF file to IMAGE. You can open the input file using Document class and create Resolution, TiffSettings, & TIFF device objects. You can get a single TIFF image using process method of TiffDevice class. Finally, you can load TIFF file using Image class and save it to JPEG2000 format using save method.

Convert CGM to IMAGE With Watermark via Java

Using the API, you can also export CGM file to IMAGE with watermark in your IMAGE document. In order to add a watermark to you can first convert CGM to JPEG and add a watermark in it. In order to add watermark, load an image file using the Image class, create an object of the Graphics class and initialize it with Image object, create a new Matrix object and set translation and transformation to the desired angle and add watermark using Graphics.drawString method. After adding the watermark in your image, you can save the JPEG as JPEG2000 format.

Convert & Rotate CGM to IMAGE File via Java

Using the API, you can also rotate the output IMAGE image as per your needs. The Image.rotateFlip method can be used to rotate the image by 90/180/270-degrees and flip the image horizontally or vertically. The library provides simple methods to perform complex operations while encapsulating all ugly details. You can specify the type of rotation and flip to apply to the image. In order to rotate and flip the image, you can load the converted JPEG image using the Image class and call the Image.rotateFlip method while specifying the appropriate RotateFlipType .

CGM What is CGM File Format?

Computer Graphics Metafile (CGM) is free, platform-independent, international standard metafile format for storing and exchanging vector graphics (2D), raster graphics, and text. CGM uses an object-oriented approach and many function provisions for image production. CGM uses these object-oriented characteristics for remolding graphical elements to render an image. A metafile contains necessary information that defines other files. In CGM, a text-based source file contains all graphical elements that can be later compiled into a binary file. Basically, CGM is a way to facilitate 2D graphical data interchange, independent from any particular platform, or device.
